Updated Building Lime Standard BS EN 459

The Building Lime standard BS EN 459 has been updated. The new version, published last month, includes amendments to part 1 Annex ZA and part 3 to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Construction Products Regulation. There are no changes to the technical content of the main body of the standard.  The update gives examples of CE marking required on product sold in the EU.
